While everyone was content to take a turkey induced nap on Thursday night, your entire extended family is in town for another 3 days and getting stir crazy. Need some ideas on how to keep everyone entertained? EBD is here to help. With a little something for every member of the family, we’ve put together a list of our favorite hot spots for Small Business Saturday so you can keep the peace, get out of the house, and support local businesses too.


For Uncle Buck Who Just Wants To Watch The Game – Stop by Proof Wine & Spirits to grab a 6 pack from best beer selection in RiNo. While you’re at it, the knowledgeable staff can help you pick the perfect wine pairings for your annual Holiday Party.


For Your Crafty Aunt Deb – In Denver, there’s no shortage of fun for the artistically inclined. Calm down from the holiday chaos and peruse the relaxing Sami Al Karim Dream Exhibition at Robischon Gallery that includes our friend Stephen Batura in RiNoLoDo. Then head over to The Denver Art Museum Shop for a wonderful selection of items handcrafted by Colorado artisans (all supporting the Museum), and check out our Paint Studio.


For Your Sister’s Kids (And the Kid In All of Us) – Pumpkin pie not sweet enough for that 7-year-old? Hammond’s Candies, a Denver staple since 1920, offers tours of their handmade candy factory. Your whole crew will leave with a bit of Colorado-proud history, tidbits about nostalgic candy, a little science, and of course all the sweets their heart desires.

Cousin Zach from SoCaLLaConte’s Clone Bar & Dispensary is the perfect stop for when he needs to just chill after entertaining his younger cousins. They’ve got everything from a complete line of edibles, to O.penvape vaporizers, to  the largest selection of clones and ready-to-flower plants in the front range. Better use it up before getting back on the plane though, dude.


For You – Congratulations! You have successfully entertained every member of your family. You deserve a treat. Go grab a signature massage at Zandi K Salon. We promise not to tattle.
